Rodial XXL Lip Liner Review

I’m always thrilled to get a new lip liner and the Rodial XXL in Nude is a nice one. This one came in my May 2017 GlossyBox.

What’s to love?

The Rodial lip pencil has Vegetal Filling Spheres and Hyaluronic Acid for smoothing. It comes in 3 shades: Pink Espresso (dark pink),  Baby (soft pink with a slight metallic sheen) and Nude (matte dusty pink shade). I have the Nude shade.


I am loving this lip liner! It is smooth, soft and I don’t have many light lip liners, this one will be perfect for Summer. It is also waterproof and anti-feathering. I did find the pencil to be long lasting and pretty.

My only problem was with the twist-up tube. It’s not twisting up for me right now and I’m not sure if it’s stuck or if this is just a sample product for Glossy box.

Also be sure to check out my May 2017 Glossybox that has the Rodial XXL Lip Liner.

Naked Cosmetics Desert Sunset Eyeshadow Review

Naked Cosmetics is a lessor known brand that sells mostly in in Salons, Spas, Studios, and other Pro Beauty Venues. I got the Desert Sunset Eyeshadow sample in my January Ipsy Bag and it’s very nice. It’s a Mica Pigment that uses no talc, oil, wax or other fillers.

What’s to love?

First up, I love the packaging. The square plastic pot twists off to reveal the eyeshadow. This square little pot has a beautiful loose shimmery sparkly powder inside. It is very fine and looks a bit like cooper on my skin. I just dipped my finger in to apply and the pigmentation was amazing. It really brightened my skin while making it shine. You can also blend it out for a lighter look.

This product is very versatile too. I tried it as a cheek highlighter and it worked quite well. A tiny bit goes a long way. The eyeshadow comes in 6 desert themed shades with a price of $14.99. Overall I think this is a quality product for the price.
